At the Kuala Lumpur airport, if you find yourself inclined to buy some tourist trinkets then you won't get a naughty plastic carrier bag. The ladies behind the counter kill time by reading magazines. Then they kill time making said magazines into little paper bags. Then you come along and buy something and it goes into one of these glossy mag bags. The example above used to be an advertisement for handbags; then it became a bag itself; then it became home to a tiny little change purse. Bags upon a bag within a bag, of course.
